Soviet Nuclear Missile Control Room ... in Cheshire
This is one of the fascinating displays at the Hack Green Secret Nuclear Bunker ... now an excellent military museum. An information board states that this room was originally accommodation for drivers and maintenance staff. Now the reconstruction shows that in the event of a missile strike against the UK the two operators would have armed the missiles with special keys and launched them from the two red firing positions.

This place is well worth a visit. There is a lot to see and think about, not just from this site, so I suggest a minimum of two to three hours, to stand and ponder....

See (and hear) the museum's superb website: LinkExternal link ... turn your speaker volume up first! :-)
